Happy Mother's Day

A friend sent this to me today, I wanted to share it with everyone. Happy Mother's Day!!


Being a Mother

Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you've had a baby
....somebody doesn't know that once you're a mother, "normal is history

Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct
.... somebody never took a three-year-old shopping.

Somebody said being a mother is boring
.... somebody never rode in a car driven by a teenager with a driver's permit.

Somebody said if you're a "good" mother, your child will "turn out good"
...somebody thinks a child comes with directions and a guarantee.

Somebody said "good" mothers never raise their voices
....somebody never came out the back door just in time to see her child hit a golf ball through the neighbor's kitchen window.

Somebody said you don't need an education to be a mother
....somebody never helped a fourth grader with his math.

Somebody said you can't love the second child as much as you love the first
....somebody doesn't have two children.

Somebody said a mother can find all the answers to her child-rearing questions in the books
....somebody never had a child stuff beans up his nose or in his ears.

Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother is labor and delivery
....somebody never watched her "baby" get on the bus for the
first day of kindergarten
.... or on a plane headed for military "boot camp".

Somebody said a mother can do her job with her eyes closed and one hand tied behind her back
...somebody never organized seven giggling Brownies to sell
cookies.

Somebody said a mother can stop worrying after her child gets married
....somebody doesn't know that marriage adds a new son or daughter-in-law to a mother's heartstrings.

Somebody said a mother's job is done when her last child leaves home
....somebody never had grandchildren.

Somebody said your mother knows you love her, so you don't need to tell her
....somebody isn't a mother.

Hot Topics

Have you watched the View lately? Are you as tired as I am with hearing Rosie, on a daily basis, complaining about Bush and the War in Iraq? I know I am. WE GET THE POINT ROSIE YOU DON'T LIKE BUSH AND HATE THE WAR!. Every time I watch the View there is a 15 minute tirade on this one subject alone. I'm surprised they have time to interview anybody on that show. A Hot Topic to me is - millions dieing in Africa of AIDS or what about the situation with poor in North America or something new in the daily news. I agree I'm not a big Fan of Bush. I disagreed with going into Iraq. But do I need to hear about it on a daily basis.

I know most of you will say then don't watch the View. Yes, I have stopped. I've been watching more CNN/CTV News World. No, I don't watch the CBC news (can't stand one sided point of view).

Let me know what you're hot topics are. I'm interested.
